Anne Hathaway Used Her Wedding Photos to Raise Money for Gay Marriage

Posted by PZ on December 4th, 2012

Anne Hathaway, who recently wed Adam Shulman in a lavish Californian wedding,  has revealed that she has used her wedding photos to raise money for gay marriage rights, giving funds to a charity working on the issue. Anne has previously spoken publicly on her gay brother Michael, so the issue is clearly something she feels very strongly about. She explained how she used her wedding photos to benefit the cause:

“I really didn’t want the paparazzi at my wedding, and I thought that I’d outfoxed them. The plan was to release a photo to my fans on Instagram. But when some paparazzi got aerial shots and I realized that they could make money off them, I wanted to prevent that, to make the money go somewhere else. So I released four photos, and every time they’re printed, in perpetuity, the money goes to a corresponding charity.”

Speaking on how being married feels, Anne says that she is so happy and looking forward to spending the rest of her life with Adam because the feeling is “wonderful” and she knew it was right with him so she believes it will last:

“It’s wonderful. I feel like I’ve found my other half, and I’m so excited about getting to love him for the rest of our lives… I would never have gotten married if it weren’t for him. You have to want to be married to someone. You have to feel that reciprocated. Marriage for marriage’s sake doesn’t make any sense to me, and I found someone with whom I could put my money where my mouth is, I guess.”
